I have finally gotten my truck running pretty good now but no time to play
with it.  Got a couple questions about it though.  It's an old block (early
70's guess) with the 2v heads

I put an 86 T-bird front timing and accesory set on it and a timing pointer
for the t-bird.  Will the timing marks be right?  I think the balancer is
off the tbird as well.

It has the old dual sump ford pan that i believe came out of an ltd or
pinto.  does this sound right?  what is the capacity of the engine oil with
this pan?  I have the timing cover dipstick but the dipstick they sent me
was wrong.  too long for this pan.  so my marks are off.  I have been
keeping 6 quarts in it plus one for the remote filter kit.


TIA guys

Subject: Header Woes !
From: gary l gordon <gary.lee juno.com>


Hi List,
I'm removing the stock exhaust manifolds on my 86/460 (F250), to fit
Hedman Hedders. On one side 5 out of 8 bolts are loose, 2snapped the
heads off and 1 is so corroded,none of my sockets will snag it.
On the other side,today after removing the heat shield (successfully),
the first bolt snapped deep inside and the next 4 were reluctant and I
didn't press the point. 1 came out like a breeze. I stopped about here
and checked the Summit catalog and saw the prices for heads!!! I think
I'll work with what I have for now.
 Seems the studs and nuts that held the shield and dipstick on either
side get corroded and wind up quite undersized and a bit round as opposed
to hex. Additionally the broken studs need to be drilled. I'm resigned to
pull the heads and have a local shop put the heads in order.
 Any and all suggestions on manifold removal will be welcomed. Can the
heads be lifted with the manifolds and then dealt with on the bench?
Failure and dynamite are not an option. TIA in NYC
